Reading Exercise 7
Read this passage about a magazine called INFO and answer the questions which follow.
Below are headings showing the stages involved in printing any document. According to the information in the passage:
write T if the stage is necessary in traditional
write D if the stage is necessary with desktop publishing
write TD if the stage is necessary in both methods.
Example) final printing
38) gathering input
39) designing page frame
40) marking text
42) page design
43) cutting and pasting
Answer the following questions based on information from the reading passage. Use no more than three words.
Example) What kind of documents
are produced with DTP? brochures, reports, magazines.
45) How many factors are combined to create DTP?
46) What three advantages of DTP for organizations are mentioned?
47) What is sent to the printers with DTP?
Questions 45-47 are open questions with a three-word restriction. Question 45 just needs a number. You also need to change ‘lower cost’ to one word (i.e. cheaper) for Question 46. Sometimes more than one answer is possible, as in question 47.
Be very careful to answer questions by referring only to the information in the passage - not to any outside knowledge you may have. You may know that desktop publishing programmes have a command called ‘cut and paste’ but this information is not in the passage so it is not relevant to question 43.
If you do not have enough time or are not certain about the answer to a question, make sure you write something. There is no penalty for incorrect answers in IELTS and you do not get marks for blank spaces.
